Moon Garden Mystery Stitch-A- Long!!!



It has been awhile since I have launched a wool appliqué stitch-a-long…I am sure excited to be doing so this year…I know we have done a lot of pieced Stitch-A-Longs but now it’s time to try a wool one, if you have never done wool appliqué before…now is the time to try.  We will be having a Facebook group for this SAL as well.  There will be lots of time for instruction and info…

A Moon Garden at night is a great way to enjoy white or light-colored, night-blooming plants, in addition to those that release their intoxicating aromas in the evening. White flowers and light-colored foliage reflect the moonlight…This is the concept that I have tried to follow here at Anchor Point when planning the flowers & trees..everything booms in white or shades of white.

We have wonderful full moons over the lake so why not stitch a Moon Garden as well….lots of light-colored blooms on a dark backgrounds.  The backgrounds I am using come from the Black prints of Little Gatherings I and II.   

Moon Garden is a 12 block basket BOM.  The blocks are nice and big for easy stitching…I believe they will finish somewhere between 16-17″…I want to leave that option open until I have decided on a final setting…Plan on using a FQ for each block to start with…I have been searching for/and hoarding beautiful light wools for these blooms for a while now, and we will have lots of fun stitching and embellishing these.

The patterns for Moon Garden will be Free on my blog for one month…until the next block is released.  We will be giving you the PDF patterns that will need to be printed on 11×17 paper…so you will have to bring them to a copy place to be printed unless you are able to tile the design and print on 4 -8 1/2″ x 11 sheets.  However we will be offering kits for those of you who love our fabric choices and want to support me/Primitive Gatherings for our hard work on this Stitch-A-long. Our block kits WILL INCLUDE the printed pattern full size, therefore no need to have to have it printed elsewhere…The pieces are big…you will need lots of large medium to light brown wools for baskets…and so on…we will have a couple of options for you to purchase…please read carefully as they are listed below. The green highlighted words when clicked on take you to our site so you can order if you wish to do so.  Again…we appreciate supporting our small family business, we can’t say that enough. 

If you are interested in buying the wool block kits with cotton background  from us as a BOM-we will be giving you the 12th block FREE as a Thank you for again supporting us to the fullest…These kits will be limited because of the cotton background limitations…first come, first serve…we will also throw in a surprise gift as well.  All the prices below include shipping- US=domestic, International is everywhere else…(you will pick your choice when clicking the green link above.)

The blocks will be:        $27 which includes shipping-Domestic                 $33- International shipping


If you are interested in the wool only for the blocks but NO cotton background we will still get you the 12th block FREE.  

The blocks will be:        $23 with domestic shipping                                      $29 for international shipping.


Also…If you wish to pay in full-wool & cotton backgrounds and do not want to deal with 11 payments you will be paying:

$297 for the full kit- surprise gift, and 12th month free…domestic                  $363 for the full kit-surprise gift, and 12th month free-international

Pay in full without cotton fabric background:

$249 for the full kit and 12th month free-domestic                                              $321 for the full kit and 12th month free-international


If you are interested in JUST buying the brown basket textures we have a bundle for that as well- you will have to have your patterns printed at the local print shop.

The bundles are $115 w/domestic shipping    $122- international shipping. The bundle shown is not the bundle you will receive, but just a picture so you get an idea.

I will also try and have starter thread kit available soon as well.  But without having all the blocks done you can see my dilemma…but maybe by the end of March I can have all the blocks stitched!!

We have tried to cover a bunch of options for you and soon it will be time to have some fun…We will be starting this is April…We want all of March to be able to make the kits and get them shipped out….but if we run our we run out…so don’t hesitate if you think you will want a kit!!!  We also will not post the pattern each month until all the kits have been shipped and a few days for you to receive them…

We obviously will be doing prizes as well if you get your blocks done each month as well as some other contests thrown in as well to keep it fun and interesting!!!

Take care all…and have a great weekend!! I can’t wait to get in my PJs and start stitching for the night…

    Hi, Lisa, It was great meeting you at Road 2 CA! I have a question about the Moon Garden Mystery Stitch A Long: Can you tell us approximately how large the quilt will be? Thanks, Linda

    Sorry, I thought of another question…will you be giving stitching guidelines with the blocks? For instance, I am noticing that your daisies are stitched from one petal to the opposite petal, across the middle. That looks pretty tricky!
